Good as Gone


When 13-year-old Julie Whitaker is kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, her family shatters. As the years go by and the search for Julie turns up nothing, even her mother Anna begins to lose hope. Then one night, the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. The family is ecstatic—only Anna can see the holes in Julie’s story. Fighting her worst fears, Anna begins a tortuous search for the truth about the young woman she desperately hopes is her daughter.

Propulsive and suspenseful, Good as Gone will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, and keep readers guessing until the final pages.
